The coffin procession took place a few hours before Maradona is buried on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, in the same Jardín de Paz cemetery where his parents were also buried.

Others gathered last night in front of the Buenos Aires stadium where Maradona began his career and which has since been renamed in his honor, setting up a makeshift shrine to celebrate the legendary World Cup winner.
